We just returned from a springtime immersion in the land of windmills on a tour never to be forgotten. Everyone in the Netherlands bikes and the rest of the world is catching on to the joy of Slow Travel to deeply connect to the landscapes and culture.  April was the best month to experience the charming wonders of Haarlem, Alkmaar, Leiden, Gouda, Pumerand and dynamic Amsterdam.

 I am not a biker, but discovered this to be exceedingly delightful. The key is a good guide.  Click to read on...

“Coddiwomple” means to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination. I’ll be coddiwompling my way to regions unknown to me. Intentionally, I google nothing and reviewed no maps. This would dilute my joy of discovery. I revel in the element of surprise to confirm the axiom, ‘Tourists don’t know where they’ve been and travelers don’t know they’re going.”

Born with genetic wanderlust, I have an insatiable curiosity to explore the globe and seek the exotic places to reboot my passion for travel. Third World journeys always give me a story to tell. , I can never become a story teller sipping umbrella drinks on a cruise ship. Bring it on! …places that speak no English, broken infrastructure, no electricity (I have a butane hair curler) and funky toilets. There’s always challenges to get one’s adventure on. For me, an ordeal is preferable to a pampered vacation. Not everyone understands this, but it’s not their journey to make sense of.  Click to read on…

Many think group tours as a regimented experience, but it’s not that way anymore.  It’s evolved for adventurers who want to be with others as they explore deeper off the typical beaten paths. You can still be independent but the experience is totally enhanced.  When you can share the activities and memories with others. 

Have you ever considered vacationing alone? For some people, the mere thought of solo vacations makes them break out into a cold sweat. However, sometimes the best travel companion you can ever have is yourself. There are many reasons why you may be considering taking off across country or even overseas all by yourself, and you’re not alone.

The solo vacation industry has been growing astronomically over the past few years, and when you join a group, you aren’t actually by yourself. Instead, you get the benefits of solo travel as well as the advantages of a group adventure.

Most people who travel alone are treating themselves, either for a new job, a graduation, recovery from an illness, or just because they enjoy their own company. Here are some reasons why striking off on your own can be enjoyable and liberating.

After a long period of work, there is nothing better than a nice vacation.

Summer might be almost over but you can still plan a warm, tropical solo vacation! Cruises are among the most popular types of vacations, but not all cruises are equal. Many people imagine cruises as huge ships packed with people, many of them children. They see pictures of long lines and commercial tourism, with no indication of having time to wind down and experience different cultures. Fortunately, this is not the depiction of every cruise and on a Windstar Luxury Cruise, things are much different.

The ships are smaller and the destinations more authentic you can truly experience new cultures, explore hidden beaches and towns, and enjoy a personalized luxury approach to cruising. Even better is when you have the ability to take a solo vacation and can make the trip anything you want it to be. One of the best cruises to go on when you’re taking a solo vacation is to the Spanish Riviera on a Windstar Luxury Cruise. Here’s what it has to offer.

Trip Highlights

On the Spanish Riviera Cruise, you’ll visit a total of eight stunning destinations or ports of call, including:

  • Lisbon, Portugal
  • Tangier, Morrocco
  • Malaga, Spain
  • Almeria, Spain
  • Cartagena, Spain
  • Ibiza, Spain
  • Tarragona, Spain
  • Barcelona, Spain

You’ll get to visit each of these quaint coastal cities and not the only experience each rich culture for yourself but truly live it. From beautiful coastlines to immersive new cultures, the Spanish Riviera cruise has everything you could want on a solo getaway. In addition to enjoying the sights and sounds of some of the most historic cities in Spain, Portugal, and Morocco, you’ll also be treated to ultimate luxury aboard the Windstar.

Solo Vacation on the Windstar to the Spanish Riviera

While traveling in a group can be a lot of fun, going on a solo vacation gives you the opportunity for a totally unique and enriching experience. You’re in complete control of your destiny on the vacation, and what to do next is always up to you. Whether you want to explore the beautiful town of Barcelona or sleep in and enjoy a brunch mimosa while lazily gazing at the ocean, it’s your call. Flying solo allows you to meet new people more easily and can truly help you discover new things about the world — and yourself — that you never thought possible.

The Windstar is capable of housing only 310 guests, so be prepared for a more intimate cruising experience. When traveling alone, you can experience everything that the luxury cruise ship has to offer, from gourmet, course-by-course dinners, water sports, a casino, and a top-of-the-line spa where you can indulge in ultimate relaxation.

The idea of taking a solo vacation is an exciting yet intimidating one, especially for some women. Many women dream of traveling to other countries by themselves to learn about other cultures and do exactly what they want to do in their own time, yet few women actually take the plunge and pack their bags. They may wonder if solo travel tours are safe for women, or whether a solo travel tour will be affordable. Here are some reasons women shouldn’t think twice about taking a solo trip and why if you’re female you should embrace wanderlust!

You Have the Ultimate Freedom

When you’re on a solo getaway, you have complete control over your schedule and the freedom to do what you want, when you want. For the modern woman having a break from our busy lives essential for recharging and taking on the world. Whether it is a trip on the Windstar or a solo trip to Hawaii, taking time for yourself and being your schedule can help you meet any challenge. On solo travel tours, women can decide when they want to sleep in, when they want to get up early and watch the sunrise, and how they want to spend their days and nights. When you’re flying solo, you’re in control!

You Can Meet New People

Traveling solo pushes you to step outside that comfort zone and meeting new people becomes much easier. People in other countries will often approach solo travelers, especially those who are female and offer to lend a helping hand. Their intentions are usually good and they’re simply curious about you and want you to feel at home in their city. Meeting new people when traveling alone can make your experience much richer and give you a new outlook on humanity!

Traveling Alone is Empowering

Simply put, solo travel tours are empowering for women. Making the decision to go—and then actually going—is a great way to boost your confidence and put yourself first. Being a solo traveler helps you grow as a person because you’ll almost always do things you’d never thought you’d do and experience things you never thought you’d experience. You’ll learn new things about yourself and how you handle different situations, and you’ll push yourself beyond all the limits you ever placed on yourself. Traveling solo and experiencing the world with just yourself can truly help you discover who you are as a human being, where you fit into in the world, and become rooted in the understanding of yourself.

“How was your solo trip?” A question friends often ask after my latest adventure.

A few years ago, if you had asked me, I would have said Ethiopia and India were in a tie for the last places I’d visit. Fortunately, fate intervened – Ethiopia and the stone churches of Lalibela were a treasure and India … well, India is a land where humanity presents itself in the most dizzying, creative burst of culture and religions, races and tongues. It’s a place impossible to not be astonished by.

Adventures For Solo Travelers (AFS) is a solo travel experience like none other I’ve found – for starters, it is a family owned business run by the energetic Suzy Davis, who has an almost encyclopedic brain of the world. She and her husband Terry meticulously plan each adventure, and they far surpass the offerings of the typical bland tour company.

This solo trip to India is no exception. It’s summer here and oh-so-very hot, but that’s the best time to see the beasts of the jungle in all their glory. Just when I think Suzy can’t possibly top the last adventure … she amazes me once again. I am writing this poolside from the stunning Oberoi Vanyavils resort next to Ranthambhore National Park, home to about 60 Bengal tigers living in the wild.

But I am jumping ahead.

When you’re planning a solo getaway, you have a lot of different solo travel companies. You can go on your own, follow your friends, take an organized tour, or travel with a travel tour company. At Adventures for Solo Travelers, we think you should join a travel tour company for your next trip, and in particular, we think you should choose us. Here’s what sets us apart from the competition.

Boutique Services Focused on You

When you work with solo travel companies, you can often tell what their motives are from how they’re set up. Sadly, a lot of solo travel companies are all about the profits. They over-pack their trips, offer subpar experiences, and spend a lot of time and money talking about why they’re the best. At Adventures for Solo Travelers, we’re different. Although we’re a business, we’ve never even considered just focusing on profits. We travel because we love it, and we specialize in boutique services with small groups and 12 to 18 hand-selected quality locations every year.
